Just got this a couple days ago and also cranked it up last night. I had no idea it was an AUD... thought it was a hissy SB the whole time.

Nice Dark Star with plenty of juicy meat on the bones. Some very nice moments of cohesion and quite a bit of meltdown. The Phil led section is wonderful and the Dew, while not one of the best-sung versions, really shines on the jams.

I dig this Dark Star but I prefer beautiful ones that really reach for the stars instead of down a whirlpool. 11-11-73, 8-27-72 come to mind for the latter day ones. Most versions in 68-71 are more melodic and more to my liking.

Ah they are all good :)
